·1 min

Boeing is facing delivery delays that are forcing airlines to revise their growth plans, according to CEOs. The company is struggling to stabilize its supply chain due to quality control problems. Southwest, Alaska, and United are among the airlines impacted by the late-arriving aircraft. The Max crisis has prompted some of Boeing’s biggest customers to reconsider their growth plans, as they have been affected by quality control issues, slow output growth, and delayed certification of new aircraft. The airlines have made adjustments to their capacity forecasts and financial guidance as a result.
